Mich adds one must also exercise caution and avoid saying something that may offend the audience or the participants.
He says: “You are as good as your last show hence the need to approach the task like any other business. I may appear to be an easy guy, but keeping people glued to a show is no laughing matter.”
To that end, Mich watches every single show afterwards for a review to see areas where he could improve or how he can be more creative.
I could not resist asking him about his regular, so called ‘friendly spats’ with Judge Ian.
Beef with Ian
With a light touch he says: “It sometimes saddens me to see good careers being broken on stage. I am usually the fire extinguisher that softens the scorching flames from the judges. I think Judge Ian needs to hang out with me more often to learn some mildness.”
TPF aside, Mich still practises his veterinary medicine where he has a small number of clients, mostly dog owners, besides concentrating on his marketing and entertainment stable.
With such a busy schedule, Mich flies to Kenya from Uganda every Saturday morning to prepare for the TPF evening show and flies back on Monday morning after the Sunday show, a routine he will do until the show ends.
